When two people marry, they join their hearts and their lives together. They may only see their lives, but they become a part of the chain of generations that God causes to come and go. When a family comes together they share their hopes and dreams for a future. The synergy of the family enables each individual to become more than they could by themselves. When a family joins together, the joy is doubled (or in this case quadrupled) and the sorrows are halved.In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. Deuteronomy 30:16
May the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, and give you peace.

What I like about Datril is his servant spirit. I can learn a lot from him.
"...whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave." Matthew 20:26-27

There are two trees just around the corner that still have a lot of leaves with a lot of color. We will enjoy them as we leave the house each day, but they won't last long.

It is a great look at the mountains and what its like to ski down the mountain. By the way, the shadow you see is David on his snowboard.

Sarah (left) celebrated her birthday on Saturday. Sarah and I lived in Colombia as kids where both of our parents were missionaries. My brother married Sarah's sister, so we go back a long way. Sarah is an accomplished pianist. She and her husband served as missionaries in South Asia.
Charlotte loves kids. Ashley, Charlotte and Leah know how to have a lot of fun.

The Richmond Pops, an all volunteer organization, provided a concert of showtime and patriotic music.

Dave lives in Castle Rock and works in Denver. By day he is an IT professional that works for a mortgage service company making sure the databases work. I really don't understand what he does, but I get the impression he is pretty good at it.
He works most of the time, but when he is not, he is exploring the mountains west of Denver, snowboarding, riding his motorcycle on 1000 mile rides and upgrading his condo. He is exceedingly talented when it comes to IT issues; he is an athlete; a good do-it-yourself er and fearless when it comes to sports. He is also the father of a very fine young man.
We love him dearly and are exceedingly proud of him.
Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Psalms 127:3

Why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
